This review is for the Select Moisturecover Duo, which was available as a part of the Mickey Contractor line.
It's a dual ended concealer with full size vials of yellow-beige and terracotta-brown and works great for people with mixed undertones like me.
This lets me custom mix my shade and the coverage lasts without any problem morning to night under my MUFE HD foundation and MAC prep+prime powder. It doesn't get overly flaky or oily.
Taking one lippie off since I'm not too fond of the applicators and mix it with my own brush. It's hard to get the right amount out and I always end up wasting some, which I hate to do since this is a limited edition and I just have the one piece I bought.
I'm on the fence about buying this concealer again. I like it, and I have very oily, sensitive, and acne-prone skin but MAC makeup never breaks me out. Go figure. But my point is just because it's called Select Moisturecover doesn't mean I can't wear it everyday. It's fine on me.
I like to use it under my eyes but preferrably on lips to neutralize the color of them, when I have the time to do that. But I think I'll buy the Pro Longwear concealer next time and try that out for a while instead, because I haven't tried that at home yet but in the MAC counter the Pro Longwear concealer was fantastic looking.
This is my go-to concealer. It covers well for those who need minimal coverage, and the formula is very creamy and blendable, (slightly watery). If you normally prefer thicker concealers like Amazing Concealer, then this probably won't meet your needs. I will repurchase.
I have this in NC15 and I'm very satisfied with this concealer, it's lightweight, moisturizing and has a natural finish.
It might crease a bit and the coverage isn't high, but I don't have a lot to cover up so this works just fine.
This is by far my favorite concealer ever!! Every other one I've tried was really drying and looked cakey, and I hate hate HATE cakey looking make up. For a while I've been settling just using a tinted moisturizer and setting it with powder to at least even out my under eye color a bit more. Moisturecover really is moisturizing, and though it's not a heavy duty concealer, it gets the job done, brightens my appearance, and has a natural finish. I did notice it settling into the tiny cracks, but setting it with powder helps it dry and not slip around. Since I've been doing that, no creasing! This also works really well on blemishes when I don't want to wear foundation or a tinted moisturizer. My skin is already dry, and the blemishes are even drier because of spot acne treatments. Though the blemishes don't "disappear" or anything when applying this, it does soften the look of them a lot and doesn't cling to or make dry skin flakies. I love this stuff and definitely recommend to people who have drier skin.
This product is alright. Nothing special to be completely honest. I don't know how someone with really bad eye bags would feel about this, but here goes =)...
1) good at somewhat eliminating shadows
2) Reasonably priced
3) Doe-foot applicator is convenient
1) Not great at covering up dark circles
2) Lack of staying power
3) Goes cakey if you try to build it up too much
For Reference: I'm an NC35 and use NC30. Don't like the whole reverse panda thing =p
This was an allright product, what I liked most about it was its lightness, I didn't really feel it and it blended well. However, it didn't cover my dark circles all that well and after a couple of hours it did settle in the fine lines of my eyes, which is my problem with almost all concealers. So if you're looking for something to cover up those dark circles pick another concealer.
i LOVE this concealer my problem areas on my skin.
not for my under eyes, but for zits/ pimples/ ect.
its a perfect formula for making that triangle that "kandee johnson" talks about in her youtube tutorials.
I've had this product for about 6 months, and it's pretty much done. I didn't notice I was having problems with it until a few months ago. THIS PRODUCT SUCKS!! It is SO liquidy, it slips off SO fast. At school, I have to touch it up about every 2 hours, which sucks!! And it still leaves me with pretty dark bags. At first application it looks great, then completely slides off and looks awful. I don't even have oily skin, so why would it slide off? I haven't tried other MAC concealers but I think I'm going to either do that or pick up a body shop cream pencil. It was just way too thin for me. It might've been my crappy moisturizer that was causing me trouble with this product, but I think it was mostly the concealer's fault. As for color, I wore NW30 because I have fairly dark skin (kinda caramel colored) and the coverage was good, it just didn't stay on at all and left my circles kind of dark. Don't like this product =S but the application is pretty good, I just don't know that the doe foot applicator is very hygienic to use.
I've purchased this item 3 times now. I use it predominantly to conceal my under-eye area, but also as a spot concealer on minimal makeup days. I take an NC-20, which is unusually light for me but matches my skin well. I am notoriously snotty about natural-looking skin products, but this happens to melt in with my natural color and skin texture with minimal effort.
Select Moisturecover is a good general purpose concealer. Although not my favorite, it is the best I have found for my sensitive and delicate eye area for the price range, which is $16USD. It comes in a convenient tube with a doe-foot applicator. A tube lasts me about a year(I wear makeup maybe 3-4 days a week max).
This concealer doesn't dry out my skin, nor does it leave it oily. However, it does settle into the few tiny lines I've always had under my eyes, so I have to be sure to set it with powder and check it throughout the day. I seldom need to re-apply, though-- I just blend the color back in and re-powder.
The pigment and formula render this product to be quite blendable and flexible in coverage. It works without much effort.
All said, I will continue to buy this product until I find something similar but better in this price range.
